Singh had said, in the aftermath of the slayings, that he and Shalinderjit had been married 17 years and had three children. 

Family members identified Parmjit and Hakitakat as his wife’s parents, and Amarjit as Parmjit’s sister.

Singh is a truck driver who told The Cincinnati Enquirer he was often away from home. 

Their three children were staying with other relatives at the time of the slayings and police said Tuesday they were safe but wouldn’t say where they were.

In the late hours of April 28, Gurpreet reportedly told a dispatcher he came home and found four relatives on the ground, bleeding from the head

Police had said soon after the slayings that they didn’t believe there was a threat to other community members.

Investigators, including divers who searched a pond near the home, combed the apartment complex for clues.

In the late hours of April 28, Gurpreet reportedly told a dispatcher he came home and found four relatives on the ground, bleeding from the head.

‘They’re all down…. No one’s talking. No one’s talking,’ he said. ‘They’re bleeding.’

Gurpreet was questioned as a witness to what occurred, but never taken into custody the night of the murders. He is still being held in Connecticut.
